A quick panorama into the sun and then made into a ‘tiny’ planet.

Last year I was in Sydney and after sunset on the pier; took a couple of pictures of the famous sunlit icons. I did not have a tripod so had to think about being creative;
This is a hold and zoom effect while taking a long exposure. Centred at the appropriate position and the only digital part was to rotate and crop the image for presentation.
The next two have varying exposure lengths – interseting to see the traditional effect on the waves.
Actually this is from the eclipse in Australia in November: a little before last contact so partial eclipse is still in view.
Merry Xmas and Happy New Year.
Second day was N3 (North Stand Tier 2) – first one previous post was in N1 (North Stand Tier 1). First was very close and direct contactt, whereas the N3 was like a high-def TV view.
This was Japan vs Egypt – in a crowded stadium (quarter-finals) it is difficult for good and large compositions. Thumbnnails below:
Large – about 123million pixels
A couple of panoramas from the 2012 Olympics; Football: held at Old trafford (29/7/12)
Also an animated GIF – first time I have done this for ages. Lots of software to choose, but simpest was
The Canon 7D has a high-speed capture mode to test out, so the wining goal by Brazil:
When taking HDR (High Dynamic Range) multiple pictures one thing you should not do is have moving components in the images. A quick test to prove this is shown at the recent firework day; where we had a large fire. Three pictures were taken,
and then HDR’ed together.
Creating small wold effects from panorams.
I have seen this effect on posters and the process is very simple.
So an example from Manchester city centre.
Panorama is from near the City Library: nice mixture of architectural style. This image is made from 35 images creating a panoram that is 11,374 x 4,161 pixels. It was done hand-held with some artifacts.
Next make this image square – in this case creating a square image 4,500 x 4,500.
Then vertically flip
and polar coordinates transform
a bit of cropping focusses the distortion.
and not vertically flipping creates a reverse operation.
Futureversions could do with having HDR images as outside and better aligned panorams.
